Holmes Lake ice-fishing event canceled

January 7, 2020 Jerry Kane

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has canceled the Discover Ice-Fishing Clinic scheduled for Jan. 11 at Holmes Lake in Lincoln because of a lack of safe ice. It will not be rescheduled.

A similar event is scheduled for Jan. 19 at Kearney’s Fort Kearny State Recreation Area Lake No. 6 from 8 a.m.-noon. While the event has not been canceled yet, conditions do not appear promising. These clinics are for young or new anglers to gain experience ice-fishing on a lake. A park entry permit is required at Fort Kearny. All fishing regulations apply.

On Jan. 18, however, the Nebraska Fish and Game Association will host a classroom clinic at Yanney Heritage Park’s Environmental Resource Center in Kearney from 1- 5 p.m. This clinic will feature presentations by some of Nebraska’s top ice fishermen. Seating is limited, so registration is requested by emailing Harold@nefga.org.
